Performance | Risk x Reward

Uncompromising original, and problematic, MAD’s performance series Risk x Reward returns for its second annual season with seven world-premiere commissions.  Assembling a group of the most innovative artists working in performance today, Risk x Reward continues to expand the evolving context of performance within a contemporary art museum setting.

Structured not only as a platform for the presentation of new performance pieces, Risk x Reward utilizes MAD as a center to support the vital process of developing bold and risk-taking works through residencies, rehearsals, and critical dialogue. 

Featuring artists ranging from seasoned choreographers to enfants terribles, the 2012 season of Risk x Reward continues to test uncharted possibilities for performance-based practices.
